Police have launched an investigation following the discovery of a body early morning on 13 June in Northolt’s Belvue Park. As yet, no details have been released about the identity of the dead person other than it is believed to be a male.
The death is being treated as suspicious and detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command are leading the investigation.
Detective Chief Inspector Claire Hine, the senior investigating officer, said: “This is a complex and fast-moving investigation and we are working to piece together the events that resulted in this person losing their life. Our top priority at this stage is identifying the person involved so their family can be informed. We are also carrying out house-to-house enquiries are reviewing CCTV to build a timeline of who was in the area at the time of the fire.”
A post-mortem examination is expected to take place later this week.
Anyone with information that could help the investigation is asked to call 101 quoting CAD 952/13Jun. To remain anonymous contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
